Bob Judge   (Managing Director - Cox Industries)
Open quote David provided his "Sure Select" approach to the selection process for our new system. We relied on David’s expertise and advise in most steps along the way. He helped make the ERP landscape comprehensible to the management team where he fully explained the rationale behind the steps we were taking and the pitfalls we were avoiding. He quickly understood our business and the value a new system would make to it and help us articulate our requirements to the software vendors. He provided full and frank advice during the process while displaying complete impartially at all times. He held the vendor and us accountable for our actions and assisted in the contract negotiation process. David has always presented himself in a professional way and as such, I highly recommend David to anyone undertaking an ERP project. Perhaps the highest recommendation is that we will be engaging David to help us in the implementation of our new system. Close quote
